from ... Paul Whibley

Starting out on the MX track I took the hole shot and led the way over a couple of doubles before we left the track and headed into the woods.

The track was dry and fairly dusty I would imagine but was just fine up front. The track weaved its way into the hills and the first real challenge of the loop appeared in the form of a technical rocky hill climb. The track then led us down the hill in a zig zag fashion before heading out over the creek for a checkpoint and a loop in the woods.

Making the most of any dust I kicked up I tried to open a gap over the chasing pack. Scotty gave me a lap time as I passed through scoring, giving me something to shoot for the following lap. During the second lap of the eight mile track another challenge reared its head. Some of the mud holes had splashed out and laid some water on the hard pack clay creating some
extremely slippery spots that I’m sure caught a few guys out. My lap times continued to improve as did my lead.

As the two hour event wore down the rocky hill cut up and snagged a few riders as they attempted to conquer the fast line straight up. With the finish flag waving, taking the win was good prep for the upcoming OMA in Michigan
this weekend.
